(This is a letter from the Madison County Clean Power Coalition and the Franklin County GRP Fallout Citizens Group to the Governor, Lt. Governor and Georgia senators.)
We represent citizens who live near the only two power plants in Georgia burning carcinogenic creosote railroad ties, Madison and Franklin GRP Biomass Plants near Colbert and Carnesville. We write in plea that you to pass HB 857 when the legislature resumes on June 11. This bill will ban the burning of creosote crossties for fuel generation in biomass plants, improve the rest of our lives, and prevent all Georgia citizens from suffering in the future.
